When I’m not attending Lions events and projects, I often have time to tour the beautiful cities around the world that I have the privilege of traveling to. Last week, I was in Hiroshima, the site of the atomic bombing during World War II. I had the pleasure of meeting the mayor of Hiroshima, pictured above, who is responsible for the Mayors for Peace Program.
Below are a few more images from my trip: the stunning view from our hotel room; the dome building at the Peace Park, which was one of the few building to remain standing after the bomb; and a school that was built by Australian troops two years after the war.
I’m currently back in Australia. Next stop: the ISAAME Forum in Kathmandu, Nepal!
